On 8-9 September, round
50 top entrepreneurs and startup ecosystem stakeholders will gather at the virtual ET Soonicorns Summit
, an initiative by the EconomicTimes.com, launched in partnership with AWS and Intel, to celebrate the league of future unicorns of India and unlock their full potential.

With around 20 different sessions across two days, the ET Soonicorns Summit will serve as a platform for India’s high-growth startups to glean insights on building resilient businesses amidst growing macroeconomic pressures.

“We think the ET Soonicorns Summit is important because, in many ways, the soonicorn opportunity is very much the India opportunity. We are a market with enormous potential and with the ability to create massive, disruptive lasting companies. But we’re not quite there yet. The ET Soonicorns Summit is meant to address the very things that are holding us back, and that are on the horizon for this stage of companies that we face today,” Gajwani said.

Watch Day 1 of ET Soonicorns Summit here:

Through a series of investor insights sessions, unicorn playbooks, and sector roundtables, the event will foster learnings on a series of pertinent themes including how startups can navigate a tough funding landscape, reimagine India’s next Techade, build disruptive tech solutions for India and the world, and create lasting businesses with solid fundamentals.

“Over the last five years, India has established that we have the potential to build really big businesses. The next phase – and perhaps the theme of the next five years – will be whether Digital India and Startup India can demonstrate that we can build lasting businesses,” Gajwani said.

And this, Gajwani noted, will come from building businesses that are fundamentally and economically sustainable, that are run with best practices with established governance and institutionalism in the way that decisions are made.

“The ET Soonicorns Summit is not just about a summit. It is a broader initiative by the Economic Times. Alongside the summit, there are multiple months of effort and initiatives that are surrounding what we’re doing,” said Gajwani.
